  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Part of a six 50ml bottle set I shared with a friend.

    Overall the whiskies couldn't hide to be from the same family. Very dense and absolutely packed with flavour in a way that I can't remember tasting before. Seems to be a style that is rather targeted to be bottled at youger age which is no contradiction to maturity here. Not sure the whisky could take a longer time in the cask, there is no reason for it either.

    I wish I had more than the 25ml. There is lots to explore.

    The virgin oak scores one point higher with water as it gets more elegant.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Really did not know what to expect from this, but it really surprised me in a positive way.
    Very mature already for only 3 year old, and very full of taste already.
    The color and the flavours made me thing there would be some sherry cask involved, with some cinnamon, leather like something, and honey and fruity.
    Really very enjoyable, a nice new distillery that has drawn my attention now.
